Home Items to Pay More For


While it's great to be a bargain hunter, there are some places where you should spend a little more for quality.  Check out Daily Finance.com's recommendations for home items you should splurge on.  

Mattresses are a place where cheapest is not best.  This is something you will be sleeping on almost every night for several years.  Back, neck pain, and fatigue are all side effects of a bad mattress.  So invest in a mattress that's supportive and will give you a good night's sleep for a long time.

While conventional light bulbs may cost less, they also tend to use more energy, which will show on your electric bill.  Invest in energy-efficient bulbs that use 75 percent less energy, generate 75 percent less heat and will last 10 times longer than conventional bulbs.  

Another great place to invest in a high quality product is kitchen knives.  A well cared for knife can last your entire life.  You also really only need a chef, paring, and bread knife, so invest wisely in the best you can afford.
